Hewes and Company Marine Division, Blue Hill, Maine

Kits Boats From Mewes Marine, Blue Hill, Maine


Over 30 small craft designs for rowing and sailing by Iain Oughtred, Walt Simmons, Paul Fisher, and Crayke Windsor.

Precision cut marine Okoume 1088 plywood planking with machined traditional sloped scarf joints and alignment markings. Birch plywood moulds are indexed for the planking. Kits include plywood only; you will need to source all of the other materials required, such as epoxy, fittings, lumber, paints, varnish, sails, and line. Most kits are plywood lapstrake and include the planking and moulds; other parts such as the decking, centerboard and transom are noted if included.

Plans are sold separately by the designers, except for the St. Ayles skiff, which comes with the kit.
